Mothersday gift idea

 Hi everyone,

This is the first post on the "new" Rick St. Dennis EDT Sparkle and Glitter blog, from now on my fellow teamies and I will post all kinds of idea's, tutorials, coloured versions of new images and all sorts of fun stuff using of course  Rick St. Dennis MFA digi's, so keep on checking this blog for all kinds of inspiration.

 If you like the darker, edgy kind of inspiration, you will find that on  Airless Chambers the other Rick St. Dennis blog very soon. From now on the Rick St. Dennis EDT has two teams and two blogs to play with, but there will be all manner of interesting stuff happening on Rick's blog too, so you will have 3 blogs to visit, we hope to see you all there.

We also hope you enjoy the new look and colours on all three blogs? Rick wanted a new, fresh feel and while we all chimed in Aletha Jane worked on the changes and Rick on new headers and buttons etc.
We start with a little easy to make gift idea, this one is for mothers day but I think it can be changed for any kind of gift by changing the digi.

The heart shaped box of chocolates had a sticker on it with the name of the chocolates, I removed that first; Printed out the Rick St. Dennis MFA digi heart, one big heart to put on the lid of the box and small ones to put on each chocolate.

Now you can cut a couple corners of course and colour the big heart first, then scan and print it smaller to put on the chocolates, but I chose to colour them all. Which was a bit hard cause they are so very small. Just sharpen your pencils very sharp and the colouring can be done (I don't have markers, but if you want to use markers, you might want to use the fine nibs or the reduce and print colour method cause maybe markers nibs are to big).
It's easy when finished colouring to cut the hearts out and glue the big heart on the lid and the small ones on the chocolate.

A simple project and I like the result


Hope you liked this little gifty idea and will visit us again soon

Be sure to leave us some comments about the kinds of projects and TUTS you'd like to see on our blogs. Thanks!

Challenge #11 Spring Is In The Air

This post is written with both anticipation and a bit of sorrow.
The sorrow because we have Sharon making the very hard decision to move onto other pursuits close to her heart.
Anticipation because, while this is the last challenge we are hosting, the remaining EDT members are moving onwards and upwards in the crafting world of blogland. Not only will you be seeing the projects they make on this blog and of course on their own, you will also see them supporting the resident DT of other challenge blogs as guests. There are other irons in the fires of the crafting communities as well. More news of that, as and when we can spill those beans.

We have a re-draw for an unclaimed prize
Challenge # 8 - Anything but Square - Sponsored by Stamp Art Design
#67 - Lucy Patrick

Please contact Natalyia for your prize.

The prize winners for Challenge # 10 will follow in due course

Well, here it is. The last challenge - this week hosted by the super talented team that makes up team Glitter.
With the weather (supposed to be) getting warmer, those burgeoning bulbs showing us some colour and our thoughts turning towards the longer daylight hours and how to spend time out doors. The time when new life abounds in the plant and animal kingdoms. I'm talking, of course, about the SPRING season that will soon be upon us - starting March 21st.
No sponsor this week but we will, of course, still be picking our three favs for the usual three EDT picks that get chosen from all of the challenge entries. These lucky people get images from Rick and a badge for their blog to wear with pride.

So here we have it

The girls on team Glitter have outdone themselves, yet again, to bring some fabulous inspirational pieces
Monique using Larry Lapin

Sharon using OPERA

using Alice 

using Lady of the Roses
Nataliya Using Easter Turtle

Now, if these EDT projects don't get you in the mood for Spring, what will? Show us what gets you springing into Spring.

Rick St Dennis has some fabulous images, both new and the old favourites, available in his Etsy shop, just right for this challenge. Whether you like them traditional, that bit more of a difference or downright creepy, there's something for everyone.
So what are you waiting for? The invitation to play is always open, and as long as the theme is being followed and we don't mind whose images are used. Of course we do love to see Rick's being used. We don't even mind if you want to enter more than one project. We love seeing them all.
